>Possibly the prime example of great power immorally used by the 'science establishment' was the dropping of the A-bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. (It should be noted that there was little protest at that time against this attack by the 'religious establishment').

A little closer to our time you may have noticed Pope John Paul II lecturing GWB for two hours on the evilness of his planned attack against Iraq. Meanwhile, Chris Hitchens' was GWBs most fervent cheerleader (the cheerleader's cheerleader, I guess.)

Have you noticed the eagerness with which so many scientists sell themselves to the military industrial complex? Its enough to make your average street walker blush. Or do you only want to bash religion?
Do you think said scientists have been trained to "think for themselves?" Is it only religion that dulls the mind so and regiments it?
